they were in colors like the Daphne Blue, Surf Green and Candy Apple Red,  

Those would be the RS-2 colors. The Teles for Dallas included Mary Kay White, Butterscotch, Trans Red, and Metallic Blue.

some had traditional Tele pickups and some had (according to the person who posted on the Fender Forum/FDP) "mini-humbuckers" in the bridge position.  

The Larrivee telecaster style guitar has a neck pickup route that will accomodate either a Traditional tele neck pickup or a mini humbucker. You simply need another pickup and a pickguard to change from one to the other (everything is solderless thanks to the Duncan Liberator system). The guitar is not in-expensive, due to its top notch hardware and appointments - but it is not over priced. The bridge alone is well over $100 my cost.

Sooo tell us about it's hardware and appointments  blush

The fact top notch hardware is being used does not surprise me at all from what was used in previous models.

When do you think they will be available to us GASING public

Thanks for answering some of our questions, Matthew! 

So ... you're incorporating some of the features of the SD35 into these - cool! Also, every one of those colors above sounds perfectly acceptable - I may have to eventually have two! And I'm definitely going to want that mini-bucker in the neck on one of these.

...another question Matthew: With the new relationship (albiet short-term) with Seymour Duncan, will these have SD pickups in them, or are you winding some "tele" pickups now as well?

The prototypes are using a special Duncan Custom Shop pickups which is not on thier normal menu. The neck and bridge pups are a perfect blend of that old broadcaster twang & bite, but with a clarity and warmth which I just love. Seymour has come to the shop many times, and he knows his tele's.

Beyond that, we're not really prepared to release alot more info.

Not so sure we will need two as from Matt's post " You simply need another pickup and a pickguard to change from one to the other (everything is solderless thanks to the Duncan Liberator system)"

Sounds to me like SD PUPS thus requiring only a neck PUP and pickguard and can change around. Well I suppose we could get a 2nd Larrivee telecaster style guitar to negate having to do the switch blush

These are very fine times

Thanks, Matthew ... we'll take what we can get!

I know what I'm getting for Christmas this year!!! (And my birthday is only 10 days after Christmas ... in my best Oliver Twist voice "Please, sir, may I have another?" In this case, "sir" would be my wife!)

Now I need to see how much overtime I can punch in this season... and see if I can find cheaper rent..... or sell some blood..... maybe a kidney....

Something about the words "Larrivee" and "Minihumbucker" that are getting the gears turning.

The other side of this is that the shops at home haven't even thought about the RS series.  I was told first that they were much more expensive than the comparable Gibson... and more recently another shop told me that Larrivee gave up on the electrics.  (I don't talk to that guy in the store anymore)

I'm not scared to spend the money when it comes in and I dont when (the money that is)........however, I've been pondering G&L ASAT so bring it on.

My twelve cents: electrics should have a fitting model name rather than model number unlike acoustics to incorporate the total package, but maybe it's too late considering Larrivee electric models current and past (RS2 RS4). Those of us that already know what to expect it wont affect.

As Markslife points out we know of no name as yet. There are pros and cons to a # BUT if we could name it; what name would you propose

Let your creative juices flow

Visioncaster
Laricaster
Americaster
Larrivee-master


Maybe after some names have been proposed we could have a poll

thinking that any reference to "tele" or "caster" is not in the cards, how about,

LE Type 1 or
LE Traditional or
LE Classic

LE = "Larrivee Electric"
